AI could be a good thing but it also could be a bad thing, depending on how a person uses it. AI can harm learning because it can do your homework or write written productions for you. Using it to do your school work can be detrimental to your learning. On the other hand, it

could save people a lot of time. AI could help teachers, doctors and many other professionals. We should remember that by saving our time, AI does us a disservice: it makes us lazy!

AI is an incredible tool but in the wrong hands, it could be used for malicious purposes such as crime, intimidation or the spread of fake news. AI could be scary for a lot of people because it is able to replace many jobs in the society.

Will robots replace humans?

AI can accomplish certain tasks faster than humans but it cannot completely replace humans due to its lack of ability to understand and feel the nuances and complexities of human life. It does not have feelings and emotions. In approximately 20 years, there will be a lot of robots but they won’t replace humans.
